Rear brake squeal

I recently bought a 05 FX4 with 43k miles. I have noticed the rear passenger side brake squeals sometimes when applying the brakes at highway speeds and coming to a stop. It doesn't always do this, just sometimes. I figured if the drums were worn, it'd squeal every time the brakes are applied. Any idea what it could be? Maybe the drums are dirty and need to be cleaned out? Is there anything to lubricate in drum brakes?

Take the drums off and see if the pads are still connected to the backing plate... 99% of ranger the shoes break off the backing plate... making it sticky when its cold and wet...

Make sure the front pads arnt worn down to the squealer... making a slight squeal... being under 50k miles i bet everythings oem...

Thanks. I hope to tear into the rear brakes this weekend to see if they look okay.
